The 4th edition of Brown and Marriott’s ADR Principles and Practice, due for publication in 2018, will be revised and updated by a new author team comprising William Wood QC, Brick Court Chambers; Ben Waters, Senior Lecturer in Law at Canterbury Christ Church University; and Shirley Shipman, Principal Lecturer in Law at Oxford Brookes University School of Law. They bring a fresh perspective to the 4th edition; while Henry Brown, originator and co-author of the first three editions, is closely involved in this 4th edition as a Consultant Editor.
In addition to a general update and revision, the new edition will address the following in particular:
- Developments in statutory and case law as well as practice, which have progressed in various fields, especially as ADR processes have become more integrated into litigation and judicial processes
- Technology, ICT and online processes including Online Dispute Resolution (ODR), which have developed, affecting dispute resolution processes
- ADR is becoming increasingly integrated into legal education and training and the work accommodates the need for a comprehensive guide also suitable for students
